What are Wall Street analysts saying about Chembio Diagnostics stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Chembio Diagnostics stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "CHEMBIO DIAGNOSTICS, INC. develops, manufactures, licenses and markets proprietary rapid diagnostic tests in the growing $5 billion point-of-care testing market. Chembio's two FDA PMA-approved, CLIA-waived, rapid HIV tests are marketed in the U.S. by a third party company. Chembio markets its HIV STAT-PAK line of rapid HIV tests internationally to government and donor-funded programs directly and through distributors. Chembio also has rapid tests for veterinary tuberculosis and chagas disease. In 2007 Chembio received a U.S. patent for its Dual Path Platform technology which has significant advantages over lateral-flow technologies. This technology is providing Chembio with a significant pipeline of business opportunities for the development and manufacture of new products based on DPP. Chembio is licensed by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration as well as the U. S. Department of Agriculture, and is certified for the global market under the International Standards Organization directive 13.485. " (4/24/2020)
  • 2. Canaccord Genuity analysts commented, "We recently hosted Chembio CEO John Sperzel for two days of investor meetings. We believe Chembio possesses an underappreciated, compelling diagnostics platform that can be used for many new indications. For small cap mandates, we recommend investors get to know Chembio (at our conference on August 7th) as they target 25% top line revenue CAGR (through 2023) and materially improve GMs over the next 1-3 years. Trading at just 2.2x (vs. 4.6x peer average) our 2020 rev. estimate of $44M, we believe CEMI is an underappreciated small-cap growth stock, given its best-in-class test accuracy, unique ability to multiplex, and ability to provide quantitative results. We see upside from a number of global collaborations. We reiterate our BUY rating and $10 PT. HIV syphilis approval is a key 2H/19 catalyst." (7/22/2019)
